Who are Green Street Blues and what do we do?
Firstly … we love to sing
We are a ladies’ a cappella choir based in Sevenoaks, Kent. Our 30+ members sing without any musical accompaniment in gorgeous 4-part harmony.
Green Street Blues are affiliated members of Making Music and The Ladies Association of British Barbershop Singing (LABBS) and through them have access to renowned singing coaches and training resources. We rehearse each week, moving songs in and out of our repertoire on a regular basis. We compete in local and national competitions, as well as public and private sing-outs and fundraising events. Some, but not all, of our repertoire is sung in a specific “barbershop style”. Other genres we have explored include gospel, sacred music and 21st century choral music. Our repertoire also includes songs popularised by Billy Joel, Kean, Nat King Cole, The Beatles, Amy Winehouse and Yazoo.
Green Street Blues have sung at a variety of events and venues, from local village halls and churches to The Festival Hall, the Camden Roundhouse, The Northern College of Music and at the Bournemouth Festival of Choral Singing. We have collaborated with a variety of choirs from genres such as gospel, folk, sea-shanties, sacred and Bulgarian music.
There is a wide range of musical skills and experience amongst our members, including professional and amateur singers, musicians and arrangers.
